China, Madagascar Enhance Cooperation In Geosciences
The MoU was signed Wednesday between the University of Antananarivo, Beijing-based China University of Geosciences (CUG) and China Geological Survey.
"This governmental cooperation will bring economic development to Madagascar and strengthen relationships between the two countries," said CUB vice president Xie Xuewen.
Antananarivo University president Panja Ramanoelina said the MoU will provide Malagasy teachers and students opportunity to develop a geological map and strengthen exchanges with Chinese professors and students.
Dean of Faculty of Science at Antananarivo University, Marson Raherimandimby, said the MoU is vital to his department as the CUG and China Geological Survey will transfer their knowledge in geosciences to Malagasy students.
"Madagascar is rich in mining resources but lack experts in geosciences and for this reason students from Antananarivo University will continue their study in China," he said.
The signing ceremony was followed by the inauguration of the Antananarivo University's Geology House which was attended by Chinese ambassador to Madagascar Yang Min and Professor Andry Rakotomahevitra of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
